Ukraine Covers the Deficit of Turkey Meat in the EU

In the EU countries, the planting of day-old turkeys in 2020 decreased by 4,5% compared to 2015

This was stated by the regional director for southern and eastern Europe of Moorgut Kartzfehn von Kameke GmbH & Co. KG (Germany).

For example, Poland in August-December 2020 reduced the planting of daily young turkeys by 26,8%, compared to the same period in 2019. And during the first five months of 2021, by 11%, as compared with January-May last year.

In total, in 2020, Poland planted 46 million heads of daily turkey poults, while a year earlier — 51,1 million.

Joachim Holz emphasized that such a situation is just not bad for Ukraine because there is a shortage of turkey meat in the EU. And the first Ukrainian producers of turkey meat are already exporting it to the European Union.

“Ukraine is developing well,” says Joachim Holz.

He added that the consumption of turkey meat in the EU was 4.1kg per person in 2019. In particular, in Germany — 5,8kg, Austria — 5,4kg, Poland — 5,2kg.
